Since 9/11, policy-makers and observers have questioned whether America should don the mantle of empire for the sake of world peace, or whether peace will come through world government. Locating Global Order questions the very idea that the political order is hierarchical, with state and international institutions at the top and groups and individuals at the bottom. Chapters examining various case studies on Canada's role in the construction and maintenance of order domestically and internationally reveal that the global order post-9/11 is not exclusively American - allied powers are a key component of its hegemony.
